In April 2020 Art For Humanity set up an Artist Solidarity Fund as a short-term intervention to provide relief to artists, art students and creative practitioners in the Durban area in the context of the COVID-19 crisis. KZNSA has created a fundraising auction platform to contribute towards this relief programme.
All the artists participating in the auction have donated their work outright, with the proceeds going to the Artist Solidarity Fund and 15% to KZNSA as an admin fee. With thanks to Janet Solomon for initiating a call-out for art, and to all the artists who responded with donations. It is our aim to run an art auction in May, June and July to support vulnerable artists at this time.
The May auction is live for 72 hours - from 12.00 Friday 22 May to 12.00 Monday 25 May. The highest bidder will be notified of their success when the auction closes. Buyers needing assistance arranging transport can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
